Women's Empowerment refers to uplifting women in every aspect such as economic, political, and social. In recent times, not a single woman neglects her needs.

Like men, women also want to be benefitted by every decision they make. I want to make it clear that I agree that divorce rates are going up because of women's empowerment. Women now understand their needs and want.

She wants to be happy with every decision she makes. And if the decision doesn't satisfy her, she have the audacity to back off from the decision. A marriage is a decision made by both man and a woman. Likewise, a woman can file for divorce if her present-day needs are not met. In earlier times women constricted themselves by the norms of society and the rules made by their In-laws included a lot of sacrifices and holding back tears because they didn't have any personal identity rather than someone's daughter or someone's wife. But now they are independent and make their own money and have a safe living without the need of a men to look after them. Now that women can speak for themselves and will not tolerate any injustice, the divorce rate is increasing.

Women were dominated from ancient time. Patriarchy reached every corner of our society. Every religion have there own patriarchal outlook and features. Women have there own identity and rational outlook, they also want liberty of thought. But due several social corruption and ignorant behavior of men lead to women down gradation in every field. In this modern world, women education build consciousness of liberty, equality and men domination. The question arrived what women should do when her husband beat or she become a victim of extreme domestic violence. Divorce is only solution for womens to abolish marriage. But divorce lead social stress, aloneness, family pressure etc. This also lead to phobia and women have to fight for there better life. Divorce is easy in modern society but in traditional it is partially impossible.

When women empower themselves they are capable of deciding what is wrong or what is right for themselves and they took decision. It doesn't mean that it is only reason for divorce, divorce can not be a result of only one cause it must be numerous of region. Women empowerment can only provide women that courage to take decision for herself.

It is very serious and important matter in the present time.

Women empowerment means -' Encouraging women for their rights and making them self-dependent. It also helps in the overall development of women.

Govt takes many steps and schemes for women empowerment like " Beti bachao betu padho yojana, Kanya samerdhi yojana, apke beti hamre beti. ".

If we show in every field like politics, sports, defense and education women are doing very well. PV Sindhu and Hima das in sports are doing well. Nirmal siraman nad Dropadi murumu doing well in poltics. So many women are in high posts in business like CEOs and directors .

We should encourage women in every field.

In rural areas, parents understand and encourage women in different fields.

If we know that men and women are an equal parts in progression in society then why we can't encourage women? And why do we suppress women's voices?

Thank You.

Hello everyone my name is Sharif Khan.

Let's come to the topic i.e. Women Empowerment -A cause for Increasing Divorce Rate in India.

Women empowerment means to give powers to women to empower them socially, Politically and Economically to improve their standard of life. We know that about 50% population of our country is women and more 70% population residing in rural areas where lacking basic amenities and status of women is still questionable. Yes women empowerment is one reason behind the Divorce but not only there are so many others reasons which including Extra Marital Affairs of both, Lack of understanding, Age gap, due recognition to opposit gender and to take otherwise to women's.

First of all, Women Empowerment encourages them to take initiative for them. In the past, women were forced to live inside the house, can't get educated, have to put a long veil on her face, were not allowed to speak to male members, were not allowed to take any decisions. They were living like a maid who only had to work in the kitchen. Nothing else, But now the time is changed. They can speak up for their rights. They can take their own decisions. They can make them educated. They have the right to do something for themselves. So, if you say women empowerment is a cause for divorce. I do not agree with this. It is happening because of not spending quality time with each other. They are not have a good conversation. Also, because of misunderstandings!

In my point of view, women's empowerment is beneficial for all women because it encourages them to do something for themselves. Now, women can do whatever they want no one can't stop them from doing anything. That's why we see women give gold medals for us. In the past period, women have no rights and freedom to do anything whatever she wants in her life women in the past period lives there live like a prisoner but today scenario is totally changed women have a right to raise her voice. We can't say that it increases the divorce rate is totally dependent on the misunderstanding between each other like and dislike.

Women empowerment stands for the strength of women with legal rights. It means women have the power to signify their value in the family profession or anywhere. They can fight as they have money and position. So this position and money make them aware and set up their mind to never tolerate any kind of harassment. Even though there are so many causes of divorce and women's empowerment is a responsible reason but I think this is not the only reason behind divorce but women's empowerment can inspire a woman to take divorce. Thanks.

Hello, I'm ASHMIT.

Today we are discussing about the topic "women's empowerment a cause for increasing divorce rate in India".

First of all, I want to tell you about what is women's empowerment?

Women empowerment means to increase the strength of women encourages them to face any difficulties educate them to create awareness about their rights. In my opinion, women's empowerment is not a driving factor for the increasing divorce rate. It happens because of misunderstandings between couples.
